Fynbos Tasting

Cape Town

Activity Description

Dear Friends of the Cape Town Fynbos Experience

Our tasting gallery in the Company’s Garden in central Cape Town remains closed owing to lockdown precautions, but the good news is that we are working on an idea which we’ll share soon. In the meantime our South African Fynbos range of products is available online at www.capetownfynbosexperience.com.

Yours in Fynbos – Giselle
Creator Cape Town Fynbos Experience

The Fynbos Tasting experience distils the best of South Africa’s edible and medicinal Fynbos in a unique two-hour flavour trail of fresh edibles, herbal infusions, cordials, tinctures, vinaigrettes, salts and digestives culminating in Fynbos mixology.
It is the perfect introduction to Cape Town, providing indigenous context for the region’s most scenic attraction. The Cape Floristic Region was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004 and Table Mountain is at the centre of one of the world’s great areas of terrestrial biodiversity. Fynbos is the major vegetation, encompassing some 7000 protected species.

The experience is much more than a tasting, according to visitors. “It’s sophisticated, detailed, multi-layered and preceded by intensive preparation”, says Giselle. “While presenting, I am also supremely conscious of capturing the ethereal nature of Fynbos, that which provides essence and a sense of place.”

Customer Reviews

Enjoyable experience delivered by a friendly, knowledgeable and charismatic host. I learnt much about fynbos and it was great to be able to smell, touch and taste the plants. The experience is located in a lovely public garden. - Phe D

We really enjoyed the experience, we felt so connected to this South African unique treasure, and as we smell the dried plants we took home it still reminds us of the beauty of the wonderful Cape landscapes! Giselle told us lots of interesting facts about fynbos with all her passion and we enjoyed tasting it in some of its forms (infusion, distillate and salad!) - Fabio Limonta

Really uplifting and fascinating insight into the beauty and medicinal benefits of the Cape Flora fynbos. Brilliantly presented with exquisite attention to the detail and thoroughly enjoyable. Many thanks to Giselle and we would love to come back to do the apothecary course. - Lucy Arterton
